After observing auditions for the BFA Acting and BFA Film, Television, Voice-Over and Commercial programs at Pace School of Performing Arts in NYC, I've learned from the decision makers (who happen to be my own audition coaches) what culminates in a successful college/grad school audition - and what does not. 


Sometimes, it's completely out of your control - like when they've already called back five three-headed monsters from the previous week's auditions and although you're a great three-headed monster, they already have five to choose from. Sometimes, it's completely within your control - like when you came in with a bad attitude because your iced caramel mocha chai tea latte was too cold.

During these auditions and my own grad school callbacks at Yale, Juilliard, NYU, USD/Old Globe, USC and Columbia, I've learned that there are really only three major secrets to success: pick the right pieces, be your best self and have fun! Easier said than done right?


During our one-hour coaching sessions, we will put you in control by:

  • Finding the right contemporary and classical audition pieces for you, that you love working on 

  • Making those pieces work for the unique person that you are (for example, we might work on making sure the story is being told, relating the piece to you and pursuing an action)

  • Practicing entering the room and interviewing

  • Learning how to combat nerves, and so much more!

Contact me to find out more and how I can help you feel confident, comfortable and kick-ass in your college auditions!

Rates are negotiable :)

With the in-depth knowledge of why one student gets a callback and another does not, I'm happy to pass this information on to young actors gearing up for undergrad and grad school auditions!
